Mexican wines in Washington DC
“We are delighted to bring A Taste of Mexico to Washington, D.C.
collaborating with fantastic local restaurants and culinary experts
joining us from Mexico. This journey through travel destinations,
culture, gastronomy, music and history will be a benchmark for
Mexico’s presence within the US. We are confident that this experience
will allow Washingtonians to have a better perspective of what the
Mexican culture is comprised of”, said Mexico’s Ambassador to the
United States, Arturo Sarukhan.
On September 6th, A Taste of Mexico in D.C. kicks off with an Open
House at the Mexican Cultural Institute. This day-long program will
give guests the opportunity to have a better taste of Mexican products
and travel destinations. Visitors will know why corn is so commonly
used in the Mexican cuisine, how Mexican chiles, salsas and guacamole
can be prepared. Also, they will learn about the traditional chocolate
beverage, the wide variety of Mexican wines as well as the origins of
Tequila and Mezcal. Special demonstrations, tasting sessions, lectures
and a temporary exhibition of Mexican artist Ricardo Mazal will be
available too. Admission is free.
* Mexican Chocolate Day at Rosa Mexicano will dedicate a special menu
based on Mexican Chocolate.
